I have a huge issue with denial. Like a few years ago when i adopted a little girl, i was going through some emotion pain of overcoming my childhood of sexual and physical abuse. so my daughter would ask me why i have cuts on my wrists, or why i am so sad all the time. and i really don't know what to say. now she is 14 and she understands why i slit my wrists and was depressed, because she is going through it too. so she asks me what happened and i just say nothing. i really don't know what else to say. should i tell her? i just don't want to upset her or worry her. help??!!!! thank you for listening.
